Third Card Rule in Baccarat Betting



A player can take a third card if he has less than six points in his hand. The dealer takes a card according to a complex system of rules:


  • if the dealer has six or more points in his hands, then the dealer does not take the card – if the player did not take it;
  • if the dealer has two or fewer points in his hand, then he takes the third card;
  • three points – the dealer takes a card if his opponent has not received an eight;
  • four points – the dealer takes a card if the player does not have a card with the following number of points: zero, one, eight, nine;
  • five points – take a card if the opponent does not have a card of four, five, six, seven points;
  • six points – draw a card if the player does not have a card of six and seven points;
  • seven points – does not get a card.


You can place one of three bets in baccarat:


  • punto – a bet on the player’s victory, paid 1 to 1;
  • banco – a bet on the banker’s victory, paid 1 to 1, but with a 5% deduction in favor of the casino;
  • draw – an equal number of points on hand. It pays 8 to 1 or 9 to 1, depending on the rules of the casino.


Thus, the dealer’s decision depends on the player’s cards.
